My favorite things

There are some perks (IMHO) to being predictable, and my annual  “River Reporter Year-in-Review” full-color, photo-heavy trip down memory lane is one that I simultaneously look forward to and dread. While I enjoy glancing in the rearview mirror and assessing what I’ve accomplished in the last 12 months, I’m also forced to face that which I did not. Where I’ve wavered, rather than triumphed, when I might have done a better job, or even the occasional “crash and burn”—what is now referred to (by the younger set) as an “epic fail.” And trust me, I’ve had my share. Every year at this time, my computer starts whining about “disk capacity” and my need to off-load tens of thousands of photos and files, which amps up the traditional urge to purge. Although it’s tempting to haul out the crystal ball and predict what the future may hold, my neurotic tendency to resist letting go sets in full force, and I wistfully, dreamily look back one final time, before begrudgingly greeting a new year. I don’t have any pictures of raindrops on roses, but this smattering of photos has somehow captured a few of my favorite things circa 2019.
